I'm new to the magento platform and I am trying my hand at writing my first magento module.
I'm following the guide here: Custom Layouts and Templates with Magento
I've created my module folders and files under app/etc and app/code/local.
I have the following layout code in in my etc/config.xml file:
<layout> <updates> <Company_Modulename_layout module="Company_Modulename"> <file>myfile.xml</file> </Company_Modulename_layout> </updates> </layout>
This looks for myfile.xml in app/design/frontend/default/default, but this confuses me, shouldn't all my custom module files be independent from the default magento folder structure? Is there a way to organise my layout XML files independently from the app/design/frontend/default folders?
